The only time I ever saw a Harley on stage was 5-23-82, Greek Th. About halfway through the drums an Angel brought his Harley on stage and Mickey proceeded to drum to the rhythm. It's a great show and a gfreat addition to anyone's collection.

Check out 6/4/78 for some harleys revving with the drummers. They rev in time to the Not Fade Away intro, too.

1992 was a good year for odd "instruments" during Drums: a jackhammer on 3/2/92, and a locomotive air horn on 6/14/92 and 6/20/92. The latter reappeared at the end of Space to introduce the first Casey Jones in 8 years. I was there, and those horns were LOUD!!!

Thanks for the suggestions. I am thinking about a show I saw, so definitely not from the 92 era (and the amplified harley was pretty damn loud, too). The more I think about it, I am pretty sure it was a NY area show in a larger venue. So, that is why I am thinking MSG or maybe nassau colliseum. No later than 82. I am thinking probably somewhere in 79 through 81, because that is when I seem to remember they used a taiko drum set.

I watched a harley try to get to the stage at UMASS in spring 79. Way uncool, I thought at the time.

Good memory, Man. I had that tape at one time, and listened to it plenty, but I forgot about that until you mentioned it.
